HP??

> and _The Facts_ is by someone called Mike Benton -

Professor Michael Benton of Briston Uni was indeed one of the consultants on
WwD, mainly for his work on the Triassic.

The other main people who worked on WwD (if anyone's interested) were as
follows....

Professor Kent Stevens of Orregon Uni was the chap who's done all the
computer work on figuring how flexible sauropod necks were.
Dr David Unwin (of Humboldt, Berlin) assisted with the biomechanics and
details of pterosaurs.
Dr David Norman (of Cambridge) advised on herbivore behaviour and is the
world expert on Iguanadon.
Dr Jo Wright (of Wyoming) worked on the whole series but was also an
authority on trackways.
Dr Thomas Holtz (of Maryland) is an expert on predatory dinosaurs,
particularly T rex.
Dr Ken Carpenter (of Colorado) has studied Stegosaurus and is an expert on
the Morrison Formation.
